    Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap

    By Dennis on 11/11/2010

    Verified Purchase

    Well, just want to comment that the trap is of high quality build, and looks as if it belongs in a garage. As soon as I received the trap (10-27-2010 Approx), I baited it with peanut butter in the holding area of the trap. I made sure I placed the appropriate amounts of peanut butter, by the vents located in the traps holding area, to aid in the distrubution of food scent, to help attract and capture mice(s). It took about 2 weeks to catch a mouse (one). I believe the mouse was caught during the night, and I had discovered the mouse in the trap the following day around 1645 hrs. I always check the trap daily. Obviously once the mouse had made its way in the holding area of the trap, it did not escape. I believe the trap is of a good design for that reason. Once they're in they stay in! I would strongly suggest one who buys this style of trap should spend the few extra bucks to get the one, such as I have, that includes the see through window in the release door. Reason being wild mice are straight up looney tooney crazy! If you have to open the non see through release door version to check if you have caught a mouse, the mouse will not have be caught for long! They will jump out like a lightning bolt out of the box! The see through release door version makes checking the trap, very fast, and the ability to possitively check of a capture without opening the release door. I have refreshed the bait, and replaced the trap in the same location. I haven't caught another mouse as of yet, 11-10-2010. I do know however if one finds its way in, it will stay in.

    Tin Cat needs to be revised

    By Linda on 12/29/2017

    Mice were eating the bait, then leaving! Evidently they could reach up to the edge of the entrance ramp, pull it down, and exit! I created a metal extension that makes it impossible to reach the edge of the ramp. It's working!

    Still waiting for first catch

    By Dave on 07/15/2016

    Well built but mice do not seem interested in moving in with peanut butter bait that has worked in my snap traps. Will try Tomcat mouse bait gel next as its working in other "single seater" enclosure traps I have

    Guess the mice are too smart. Haven't caught one yet. Have it baited with peanut butter and salami.

    Expert Response  Expert response:
    Thank you for your feedback! Be sure that you have placed traps along runways where you have observed rodent activity. You can also use a glue trap on top of the trap in case mice are going over the top instead of into the trap. Please let us know if you have further questions!
